Just to add, for anyone that doesn't know, Astra's after '09 changed stud pattern and bore size. I found out the hard way!

Re: wheel and specs FAQ's

Is there anyone to confirm that 6.5Jx16 ET41 rims are compatible with Croma 2.4 or not? I am asking this, because the owner handbook says that the compatible rims for 2.4 engine are only 17" and 18". I am considering buying 16" rims for winter tires.
And what about the offset (ET)? Could it be slightly different, because there are much more Opel's rims on our market and these are usually with different offset?
Thanks in advance!

Re: wheel and specs FAQ's

i got a second set of aloys in 17" for winter off ebay, they were only 60

a few mm off set it usually ok, if you are going for thinner tyres should be ok, if the off set is less wheels stick out more, if off set is greater wheels sit further in.
if you can test fit wheels before buying.

Re: wheel and specs FAQ's

The offset will be fine but you might find that 16s are a bit tight around the brakes.

Is it dangerous for brakes or something else? I'm wondering whether 16s fit at all.

Re: wheel and specs FAQ's

They might not fit at all, but even if they do fit they may restrict air flow around the brakes, which could lead to over heating. Personally I would look for some 17s as they should fit ok plus 17" tyres are generally cheaper than 16s.

Re: wheel and specs FAQ's

But surely if they are for winter tyres the shouldn't be a problem with brakes overheating.

I do believe the standard spec 1.8 Dynamic (not sold on UK shores) has 16" wheels.

Re: wheel and specs FAQ's

They probably wouldn't overheat, but the less air flow around the brakes the more likely there is to be a problem.
